As thousands of people gathered in Washington, DC and across the country to protest the Trump administration’s separation of families, NARAL Pro-Choice America Vice President Adrienne Kimmell issued the following statement:

“Over five million women, including countless NARAL members, marched in the streets on January 21st because we knew what was at stake, and we are showing up again today because we refuse to back down against Trump’s backwards ideology. Families belong togetherperiod. Trump and the anti-choice GOP may claim to be the ‘pro-life’ and ‘pro-family’ party, but their values continue to erode as their policies prove time and time again that they believe the lives of immigrant families and brown children don’t matter. NARAL members, and millions of voters in November, will never forget the harm this administration did to families seeking asylum and the pain and suffering they have caused. To every elected official currently staying silent and complicit in Trump’s devastating agenda: We are watching, and we won’t forget. November is coming.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
